|Water Dream at MODA|
The Museum of Design Atlanta's (MODA) Water Dream exhibition has been absolutely phenomenal. And this is the final weekend to see it.
I posted on the MODA Facebook account just yesterday (after they reminded us that Water Dream is coming to an end) how great it's been to see how they've uniquely shined the spotlight of artistry on a subject that most of us see as "functional."
Lesson learned: Anything can be art, everything has design.
Although saddened to see Water Dream evaporate, even after making such a great splash, I'm excited about the upcoming exhibitions opening on Sunday, October 2, 2011...all three of them!
One is titled "The Opulent Object in Wood, Metal and Fiber: Richard Mafong, Mike Harrison, and Jon Riis." Who doesn't love a little opulence?
The other two are rather sobering, but terribly important, even after so many year. One of the two is a rotating display of The AIDS Memorial Quilt. Rotating monthly during the exhibition, several of the 40,000 panels will be on display.
And the other is equally as potent: "Graphic Intervention: 25 Years of International AIDS Posters."

So, be sure to catch Water Dream this weekend if you've not yet seen it. And I'm told that we probably haven't seen the last of Mo'Duck, MODA's Water Dream mascot...quite the adventurous little red rubber duckie!
